3.5 is not happening imo. The new C43 has similar HP (385) and more peak torque and managed 4.1 0-60 and 12.6 at 111 1/4 mile. The 340 may be somewhat lighter but improvements from 4.1 to 3.5 are not the same as going from 6.5 to 6.0. My guess is we may see a 4.0-4.1 with this car which really is great but what I am really more interested in is to see if this will trap close to 115. My guess is no but we may see 112-113 which would be still be really good for this middle trim Car.
You are most likely right, but somehow I have a strong feeling this will be a sub 4 sec car....when BMW itself quotes 4.2. Lets wait and watch
